I've been dealing with some major depression since my son was born, and environmental factors don't quite help much. It was by the advice of a friend who knows I need to reach out, but understands that... I really have a hard time talking about this with my friends.

It's quite hard, really. A lot is bottling up inside me. I have tons of friends to talk to, but.. nobody who's been there, or who is going through it. I need people who won't pass judgment and who will understand my ventings.

I've heard marajuana is a savior for many people who get horrible morning sickness! I wish I knew that when I was pregnant with my daughter. Regardless, welcome, I hope we can offer some support!

I have that feeling too about my son - my son is 20 months old though and I have absolutely no support, besides my husband... seriously no one wants to watch him, see him, nothing... period. He has a disability of some sort which doesn't help and I really can't even stand to be around him, it's horrible having depression but I can totally feel for you!

oh my, that is horrible.
we've had some family members shun the baby during the pregnancy.
I'm ruthless. I gave the persons fair warning they may want to change their minds and quit being douchebags.
They didn't.

Now the only time said persons are allowed to hold our son is when my husband is in teh room and right next to them. That's a bit of a punishment to my husband, but I will not be in the same room as them.
